Nearly real

Simon Birch captures movement in portraits.

Painting is a side hobby of mine, which I indulge in when I want a break from advertising and design. Recently I’ve been engrossed by the paintings of UK-born, Hong Kong-based artist Simon Birch, who creates near-realistic (but not quite) portraits to fascinating results.

This week’s Frandoms are by Shon Tanner, art director, Spring Advertising.
